Hi Guys,

I think out of respect for the author of UI-View32 and his family, and 
his understanding, that he would not destroy the method of turning the 
software on by issuing the method to provide the keys, if the community 
would donate a like amount of the fee to the Cancer Foundation of their 
choice to aid others to survive an illness that he lost the battle to, 
this thread should stop...
